The BJP on Friday refused to react to a media report about Road Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari taking a French cruise along with his family, which was allegedly sponsored by a top corporate house. "This kind of news keeps coming every day. We don't need to react to this," BJP leader Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said. ....

Congress a falling house, Rahul's sabbatical exposes party's faultlines
FnF Correspondent , Feb 24, 2015
Rahul Gandhi's surprise sabbatical has exposed faultlines in the electorally-battered Congress, which is bracing for a generational change. The party has tried to downplay Gandhi's sudden move saying he is the leader and will come back soon to play a pro-active role in party affairs. ....

After Delhi conquest, AAP set to revive fortunes in UP
FnF Desk , Feb 16, 2015
After winning the Assembly elections in Delhi hands down, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has set its eyes on Uttar Pradesh -- the country`s politically most crucial state. The state had slipped out of the party`s radar following the initial euphoria after Arvind Kejriwal took power in Delhi the first time in December 2013. Now it seems to be finding favour with people again. ....

PM Modi's secular pitch can give BJP a new face
Amulya Ganguli , Feb 21, 2015
The saffron brotherhood is apparently coming to terms with India's pluralism - and the constitution. As Prime Minister Narendra Modi's observation that his government will act against any religious group inciting violence shows he has realized, albeit belatedly, that he cannot afford to maintain his "dangerous silence", to quote the New York Times, on the intimidation of minorities by Hindu groups affiliated to the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS). ....
Delhi election 2015: Have Muslims abandoned Congress?
Syed Ubaidur Rahman , Feb 16, 2015

Recognizing the significance of the AAP
Uday Dandavate , Feb 09, 2015
Though India attained independence from the British rulers in 1947, it did not attain freedom from servitude. A new elite class of politicians, businessmen, and bureaucrats continued to hold everyday people to ransom, while cornering resources to amass personal wealth and power. ....
Loss in Delhi bad for Parivar, not the BJP
Saeed Naqvi , Jan 31, 2015
In politics, sometimes normalcy looks abnormal. That the Bharatiya Janata Party should be with its back to the wall in the Delhi battle is abnormal for those who have not yet recovered from the awesomeness of Narendra Modi's victory in May 2014. ....
Janata Parivar: A group of opportunist provincials
Amulya Ganguli , Dec 27, 2014
The so-called Janata "Parivar" comprising remnants of the old Janata Dal has been severely jolted in its first trial of strength although it has not yet been formally constituted. The dismal performance of the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD), the Janata Dal-United (JD-U) and the Congress (although the latter is only the parivar's soul mate and not a member) suggests that the nascent alliance has a long way to go before it can be taken seriously. ....
Hindutva upsurge will tar Modi's image
Amulya Ganguly , Dec 13, 2014
The first phase of the Bharatiya Janata Party's (BJP) politics was marked by the targeting of mosques and churches. After the advent of Narendra Modi, the scene has become quieter. In fact, the Ram temple issue has been put on hold and even the fulminations against "love jihad", the supposedly sinister plan of Muslim youths to marry Hindu girls, have faded away, at least for the time being. ....
India: Towards a One Party Rule
Uday Dandavate , Nov 14, 2014
Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Shri Amit Shah are going about systematically bulldozing their way with a singular objective of establishing a clear line of command both at the center and in the states. The process is strategic, and ruthless. ....
Delhi poll: BJP's non-performing winning candidates may face the axe
Rahul Vaishnavi , Nov 09, 2014
In no mood to lose ground to the AAP ahead of the Delhi assembly elections, the BJP is likely to replace around 10 of its "non-performing" candidates who had won the December 2013 poll but who lagged in spending their constituency development funds. According to a party source, an internal report on the performance of the 29 MLAs, including the lone Akali Dal candidate, ....
Is there any hope for Congress?
Amulya Ganguly , Nov 08, 2014
The Congress high command, which means the mother-and-son duo of Sonia and Rahul Gandhi, is mistaken if it believes that the deep nervousness among Congressmen about the party's bleak future can be dispelled by a token offer of resignation by the two and a clean chit for themselves which they secured from a servile acolyte, A.K. Antony, in a report about the election debacle. ....
Congress in self-destruct mode
Amulya Ganguli , Oct 18, 2014
Perhaps the awareness about the irredeemable nature of the Congress's political fortune persuaded Prithviraj Chavan to let the cat out of the bag. By confessing, however, that he was powerless as the Maharashtra chief minister to probe the allegations of corruption against influential party members like Vilasrao Deshmukh, Sushil Kumar Shinde and Ashok Chavan, ....
